From the Desk of Don Shea, Director and Contract Administrator

Welcome to the Summer 2016 edition of the CA Quarterly Review. Hopefully you are enjoying Florida's beautiful beaches or a pool to keep cool during the hot summer months. I discussed the possibility of HUD reinstating NTHDC's authority to conduct Management and Occupancy Reviews in our spring edition.
We are excited that HUD modified our contract to reach that end and we are now conducting Management Reviews again. It has been a while, but we are looking forward to visiting your properties and engaging with your on-site teams.

HUD and NTHDC worked collectively to establish a work plan outlining which properties will be reviewed in the upcoming months. HUD provided guidance of priority properties to be reviewed and we also considered the location of sites to match the initial properties in proximity to current staff. We are adding new staff as well and we will be introducing them in the next newsletter. We will once again have staff located throughout Florida to provide coverage for our portfolio. We are hoping to be able to visit all of our sites between now and the end of 2017, so you may not see us right away but we will eventually reach you. You will still receive plenty of notice prior to your MOR to coordinate the specific dates NTHDC will visit your site.

The NTHDC website provides a lot of useful information relating to the MOR process and relevant documents. We will also be offering a session covering MORs at the upcoming SAHMA Regional Conference in Jacksonville on Monday August 15th. We will have staff available throughout the conference (August 15 - 17) to discuss any MOR or other PBCA related questions you may have so hopefully we will see you there.

One other bit of good news from HUD was the recent extension of our PBCA contract for the Virgin Islands through the end of 2017. This brings all the HUD PBCA contracts in alignment and will cover the period until HUD rebids the PBCA contracts again. It is a privilege to assist you in any way that we can as your PBCA. Thank you for all that you are doing.
